Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

Main changes from the standard Megane Coupé include a yellow-faced rev counter and an analogue speedometer instead of the digital readout on mainstream models. Renault felt the analogue dial was more sporty and made it stand out from the rest of the range. There are plenty of soft touch materials and everything feels well made. Rear visibility is somewhat compromised by the coupé roofline, but isn’t too bad.

Air conditioning is standard on the Cup version, with dual-zone climate control on the more expensive sports chassis model. Rear seat passengers may find headroom a little tight, but otherwise comfort is good, and apart from some road noise, particularly on the optional 19-inch wheels, the cabin is a relatively peaceful place.
